Have you ever read a book and think that this character or that would be a hoot to meet in real life? Now I have not read all the books I want to read but I have a long list of fictional characters I'd love to meet. This includes Gandalf, Darcy, Heathcliff, Odd Thomas, Scout Finch, Dream, Severus Snape, Ron Weasley, and so many more. (I'll pass up a chance to meet a certain sparkly vampire, thank you very much). But to narrow it down, I have here 5 fictional characters I'd love to have coffee with. A couple of them are not human and will most likely not be allowed in any Starbucks branch but I'll still invite them for a good conversation over a cup of steaming java.

Death in the Discworld Series is perhaps one of the most interesting characters I've had the pleasure of "meeting." He may be described as your typical Grim Reaper but he is actually a very nice fellow. For a soul collector, I mean. I reckon he'd be a wonderful companion for discussing the many strange and indubitably human things that humans do. Death would be a fun coffee date if I am having some questions that are philosophical in nature but only in the mood for gnomic and witty answers.
I like Pratchett, sue me. Actually, I'd rather you don't. I'll need to have coffee with Anathema Device first so that I can ask her if this imaginary litigation would result in my favor. Aside from the fact that she has front seat view to the future, Anathema is one of the fictional characters I'd love to have coffee with because spending some time with a wise and no-nonsense woman is essential. In my opinion, anyway.

Atticus is one character I truly admire. There are times when I go to a cafe simply to sit and read a book. Atticus loves to read so I think having a quiet time with him in a cafe would be a treat.
Because he is hilarious and he will be a fun "creature" to watch people with. Let's forget the fact that I can't possibly summon him and he will most likely be in foul mood if he appears in this world only to have coffee with me. Not that he'd be able to drink the dark liquid. But let's say he's in an agreeable disposition... A coffee date with him would involve me asking him all sorts of questions about the magical creatures the he can see but humans can't.

Georgia is a hoot. She will be a great girl to hang out with if I am in need of a fun girl time. With her colorful (puppy)love life, an afternoon in a cafe will not be enough. In fact, it would be nice to be invited to her home to meet her family, too. I love cats so I'm pretty sure Angus will be kind to me. I hope.
This is a rather short list for someone who loves to read, I know. I had temporary amnesia when I was writing this post. Now it's your turn. Tell me, any fictional characters you'd love to have coffee with?
